Please note that I reported this issue for the python2.6
package and not for the offlineimap package.  While I
noticed it with offlineimap, I think the bug is either
in Python or in openssl.  According to Python documentation
it should default to use SSLv3.

OTOH it wouldn't hurt if offlineimap would allow the user
to specify the protocol version (TLSv1, SSLv3, SSLv2).
